Connecting people, nature and spiritual practise through the cooperative development and management of a self-sufficient intentional community. Our mission includes construction of a retreat space using a design of sacred geometry (Tree of Life or Kabbalah), alternative energy, organic gardening and a co-operative of like-minded people.

Building community, nurtured by nature and inspired by spirit.

You can contribute by participating now in tasks, and chores performed in a state of contemplation that further the development of this sacred space while banking your contributions for continued future participation in the Centre's activities. Others may wish to explore direct investment opportunities. To learn more, visit the Tree of Life website.

Spend a day or more in Salmonier working directly with Mother Nature. Bank your hours toward any future activities with the Tree of Life Retreat or The Lotus Centre. Potlucks, car-pooling, and fire circle sing-a-longs are just part of our offerings on this connection with nature!

We organize weekend trips. Our organized car-pooling Nature Days weekends are every weekend. Contact us to book a car ride!

Every weekend is available to visit and work at any time to earn TOL credits. Just call ahead to let us know you are coming.

The Tree of Life & The Lotus Centre are interconnected. Earn redeemable TOL points. Check out From Meranda to You for photo updates on our progress.
